Pacific Blue


#1ca9c9 color imageHex colour reference: #1ca9c9

A colourful note: this greenish-blue shade appeared in Crayola fashion in 1992, known simply as #16.  This naming by number was a way of promoting that year’s naming competition.  In 1993 the winners were announced and the crayons named; this marine evoking colour became Pacific Blue,  thanks to the 40 year old winner, Dharam Kaur Khalso.
